Model-based maximum power point tracking for wind generators

Keywords: Power optimization, wind generation, loss-free resistor, multi-machine wind system

Abstract

A model-based maximum power point tracking solution for wind systems is presented in this paper. The strategy uses the Loss-free resistor concept and a generator model, which relates the load impedance required to produce the maximum power depending on the generator rotor speed. The strategy performance is validated through simulation and the emulation of a multi-machine wind generation system. With the proposed strategy, it is possible to extract the maximum power of each generator and, therefore, the maximum power of the generation system.
